Turkey Con Queso Bake

Chili con queso is typically served as an appetizer with corn chips, tortilla chips or vegetables. By borrowing this idea and combining it with a turkey wrap, a new dish emerges. When assembling the dish, the sauce may seem too generous, but it eventually thickens and provides enough to spoon luxuriously over the rolls.

In saucepan, melt butter over medium heat; fry onion and garlic, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 2 minutes.

Add flour; cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Whisk in stock and milk and bring to boil, stirring; reduce heat and simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat. Add 2-1/2 cups (625 mL) of the cheese, salt and pepper; set aside.

Filling: In large bowl, combine turkey, tomatoes, olives, onions, coriander and jalape?epper; stir in 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the cheese sauce. Spoon 3/4 cup (175 mL) into greased 13- x 9-inch (3 L) glass baking dish.

Divide remaining filling evenly among centres of each tortilla; roll up loosely. Place, seam side down, on sauce. Spoon remaining sauce over top. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 8 hours; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.)

Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until golden and bubbly, 35 to 40 minutes. Let stand for 15 minutes before serving.
